Updated flash-player-plugin package fixes DRM content playbackPublication date: 31 Mar 2014
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
This Flash Player update fixes playback of protected ("DRM") content (such as videos on Google Play Movies, Amazon Instant Video, Flixster Digital Copy, and other similar services). If you are still experiencing issues with such services even after installing this update, please close your browser, open a terminal window, and execute the following two commands to clear the Adobe Access DRM directories as instructed by Adobe: $ cd ~/.adobe/Flash_Player $ rm -rf NativeCache AssetCache APSPrivateData2 Adobe Flash Access DRM module depends on freedesktop.org HAL which is not provided on Mageia as it has been deprecated. To satisfy the HAL dependency, Chris Horler's hal-flash compatibility layer has been incorporated into the flash-player-plugin package. The hal-flash library provides the subset of the HAL API used by Flash Player by wrapping udisks.
